FCA Says it Will Stop Using Certain Takata Airbags

Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) will stop using any Takata airbag that doesn’t use a drying agent.

The automaker says within the next week it will stop manufacturing vehicles in North America with airbag inflators that don’t contain the drying agent. The entire process will be stopped worldwide by mid-September. _Chrysler says most airbag inflators in FCA vehicles have propellants other than unprotected ammonium nitrate, while other inflators do contain ammonium nitrate, but those inflators are equipped with the desiccate.

“I didn’t see this coming,” said no-one, ever.
